*I really like the approach to this statue that Varner Studios took. They managed to capture the clean lines of the animation of B:TAS and the curvy nature of the heroine while adding in some small details to make the statue a bit more interesting. I like how the Bat-symbol on Batgirl's chest is actually etched into her costume rather than just painted on.
* Here's a quick view of the back of the statue. You can see that Babs' hair and cape are incredibly simple, keeping with the style of the show. Everything looks great, especially the cape. The black interior and blue exterior are nicely painted with little overlap on the edges.
* And that problem is that the most interesting part of the base, the front of the car with the speaker for the siren (that's what I assume it is, at least) actually faces the back of the statue. If you look at Batgirl from the front or side you're just going to get the view pictured to your left. To be honest, it wasn't until I turned the figure around that I recognized the base as a GCPD patrol car.
* Look closely at the edges of the paint on the bat-symbol on Batgirl's chest and you'll definitely see some paint slop where the yellow from the symbol runs over onto the gray of the uniform.
